What is the Matrix?
Since part I is "missing", we'll take it from Part II then, actually, not a heck is missed as Part I would have dealt with how they got the paper to make your newspaper, in this part they start telling you how they put the newspaper together, with news reporters, photographers (I think) and of course the funny pages. What was odd is that the film hardly focused on anyone BUT the cartoonists, introducing every single one of them (I think there was about 8?) Zzzzz... After that, we see the paper actually being made, with molds etc being done and finally the paper being run off and people collecting it (watch for the scene with two kids running to get the paper of the front stoop while Mom closes the door behind them lol). Although this film has gaps (The subject of reporting or photography is hardly mentioned (But the funny pages are!!) this is a nice little time waster.,
